File Manager

Estimated reading time: 1 min

You can use the file manager to upload, edit, manage, and remove files from your website. The file manager offers direct access to the “root” file storage level on your site in addition to all shared file areas (public, member, and leadership). Click “File Manager” under Website CMS inside Congregate Admin to access the file management interface.
